Our Projects

Innovations - Week 1

We are 6th form primary students from Newlands School.

We started this project about Innovation defining the concept.

Then we analysed Innovations that we use everyday as well as innotavions that can save lives.

We read about Argentinians who had great ideas too!

Finally, we imagined what the world would be like in 2030.

Sustainable Cities

We watched a video to learn about sustainable cities

We carried out research to try to answer the following question:

How can cities become more sustainable in relation to each of these issues?

  • transport,
  • energy,
  • nature,
  • food,
  • waste.

Then, we thought about Adrogué, our city, and gave examples. We went around the city to discover how sustainable Adrogué is and what can be done to achieve greater goals.

Finally, in five groups we thought of innovative ways to make Adrogue more sustainable!
